Executive Cottage, 5 Bedrooms, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 12)
We are a family of 4. We have been renting for 16 years and have met many wonderful families along the way. My husband and I have a 9 and 4 year old son. We currently reside in Toronto and both work in IT. One day we plan to retire in our beloved lakefront home.
Owner purchased this Cottage in 2001
Why Owner chose Douro-Dummer
We originally bought in this location because we loved the lake & with the nearby amenities we have the best of both worlds. We prefer a quieter fishing lake than a busy boating lake. There are no houseboats on our lake, few skidoos & great fishing. Our lake is however fed by Stoney Lake and so there is a boat launch across the street onto Stoney Lake for those days we want to boat on the Trent Severn lake system. The drive is quick. The road is plowed seasonally & so we enjoy our lakehouse year round and love the proximity to so many different activities.
What makes this Cottage unique
We think one of the most unique benefits of this property is the design. Given we had owned the cottage for 6 years, when it came to building, we knew exactly how we wanted to use the new space. The house is big and spacious so you never feel crowded. The areas are wonderful for gathering with family & friends. The BBQ is right off the dining room & kitchen - the deck is huge with amazing views. The lakefront is fantastic for kids and fishing. We can catch large & small mouth bass off the dock! We absolutely love our home and believe you will too.

Fabulous cottage and location.
Easy and efficient.
We spent a wonderful week in these amazing accommodations - inside and out. Highly recommended
Our family of 8 had a wonderful vacation this week - kayaking, swimming, fishing, roasting marshmallows sitting around the fire out, playing games, eating and relaxing. The house is spacious, comfortable and fully equipped. We loved the amount of seating on two levels and for dining. Great kitchen for cooking. We rented a paddle board from a nearby marina for the week. Perfect cottage life! And the owners were very responsive to any questions we had. Can’t think of one negative thing to say.
An incredible place with all of the amenities and more!
Woke up to a gorgeous sunrise after a wonderful evening with my family. It has only been one night and I am already so grateful to you and Christy for sharing your place with us.
It is just lovely, thank you :)
We absolutely loved everything about this beautiful cottage! 5 stars! Highly recommended. What a gorgeous place. We hope to rent it again every year!
Gorgeous homey cottage with beautiful lake access
This is my second time renting out this cottage from Vij. The cottage is beautiful, just like the photos posted here but even better! It's very clean and the decor is very unique and pretty. It has lots of rooms and beds which is perfect for a larger group of any kind! The access to White Lake was also beautiful, water was clear; perfect for both canoeing and swimming. Will definitely rent out this cottage again in the years to come. Vij is very helpful in anything you need, each and every time :) It's a very relaxing and comfy cottage that makes everyone who have stayed not want to leave and come back for longer!
Thanks very much for the review! We're so glad you had a wonderful stay.

Former long time cottage owner
The cottage was absolutely fantastic. On a great lake perfect for kids. Boats & watercraft do not come near the dock so it is very safe. Long dock & diving platform really great. Close to Peterborough where we live .A perfect place for our large family with lots of grandkids.We have rented 2 years in a row & loved it both times. We came to think of it as our place. Lots of room on all three levels of the cottage. Room to spread around & not feel crowded even with a larger group. As cottagers of 35 years we are pretty experienced . I cannot think of even one negative thing to say about this wonderful cottage on White Lake.
Thank you kindly Don. We so enjoyed having you year after year and we welcome you back anytime. Thank you for taking the time to post this review. Most appreciated. Christy & Vij
